  1. Hello fellow Wyrdos! I am coming back to the game after a hiatus midway through 2E. Between a close friend talking me back in, and a better gaming group locally, I am back to avoiding the Black Joker. Back with one major caveat this time; a self-imposed limitation for buying models. Last time I played, I had a very Pokemon-esque "gotta buy 'em all" mentality, which led to several still NIB models that were never built, let alone painted or put on a table. I would like to avoid that this time, and have decided to limit myself to only models that I can fit into my standard Malifa

  4. Hello. Can I skip the first part of ability (don't discard Upgrade) and then use second part (attach Upgrade)? Or I must use both part of ability if I want to attach Upgrade?
  5. Tried my first Spirit crew with Yan Lo. Strategy was Squatters' Rights, and my schemes were Deliver Message and Breakthrough. Here's the list: Yan Lo w/ Awakening, Brutal Khakkhara, Wronged Spirits Datsue Ba w/ Spirit Whispers Chiaki w/ Pull of the Grave Soul Porter 2x Goryo 3x Onryo I was going against a Lilith led Neverborn crew built for speed (3 Terror Tots, 2 Bloodwretches, Lilith w/ On Wings of Darkness). Tight game all the way, at the top of turn 5 Neverborn were up 3 VP-1 VP. Then I took my brain out and lost 6-4. Lilith attacked Datsue Ba but f
  6. I started actually playing in the past few weeks, and so far I am a whopping 0-5. My best friend and I play each other (no other players in our area), so each game has been Lilith vs a Yan Lo TT crew. We proxy models we don't have to get a feel for what works and what doesn't. Anyway, I know that some of my losses were due to either stoopid mistakes, ie. leaving Yan Lo open to Lilith and forgetting to stone for damage reduction, or totally screwing the pooch on my schemes. But I'm curious about using Yan Lo as a Ressur. What are everyone's thoughts on this?
  7. Hey everyone! So I've decided to compile some notes on Yan Lo for the community and discuss some tactica for him. What does Yan Lo offer that other Masters don't? At first glance his rather basic stat line leaves a little to be desired. He has no real defensive abilities (yet) and no tricks for avoiding damage like Armor or Incorporeal (yet). He does offer some fun opportunties to watch him power up and then become quite fearsome. He is a master that makes spirits meaner, and will love the Adversary Condition. However, he does have some interesting abilities. Infiltration (R
  8. So I had something come up recently that I’m pretty sure I know the answer to, but wanted to confirm. Sensei Yu’s (0) Disciple allows him to take a (0) action belonging to a friendly master. Yan Lo’s Awakening upgrade allows him to take the (1) Lightning Dance as a (0) action Can Sensei Yu use Lightning Dance if Yan Lo has the Awakening upgrade?
  9. Hello! This thread will serve as a place for me to post battle reports so I don't end up flooding the board with them. As the title suggests, the focus of this thread will be on my Outcast games with Parker Barrows, and a little Freikorp, Viktorias or whatever else I feel like playing on the side. This OP will be updated with links to each Battle Report as I complete them. Any suggestions, thoughts, or comments are welcome!

  10. Searched a bit, didn't found anything that could satisfy my curiosity. So here I am, asking you: what's a typical Yan Lo build? What's his general plan? What is he supposed to do? I see him (looking at cards) as a bruiser that can disrupt your opponent's plans. Am I wrong? Help me understanding my new Master for a virtual hug.
  11. So I recently picked up Yan Lo, because I simply can't stop myself from buying new masters. Figured I'd chronicle my Yan Lo games here so everyone can see how NOT to play him. My first game was vs Ten Thunders Standard Deployment Headhunter Claim Jump, Eliminate, Dig Graves, Recover Evidence, Search the Ruins I took: He took: Yan (Fortify, Brutal, misdirection) McCabe (s
  12. So I've taken the plunge and had a go at an all-in build of Yan trying to use all of his upgrades. I think I've succeeded? The largest obstacle of this build was building around the Blood Ascendant upgrade, being as expensive as it is. Now let me preface this. I am not a fan of the sacrificial Wastrel. And I'm thinking of swapping it for a Clockwork Trap and extra SS. Might be a bit more straining on my hand and cost me an Ashigaru, but 4 SS for 2 Chi is still a lot. But if we're playing Blood Ascendant, we're going all in. Yan Lo [4 SS] >Follow Their Footsteps [1] >Awakening [1
  13. So. I'm typically a Neverborn player but I dip into TT from time to time. I really enjoy Yan Lo aesthetically and thematically. I've almost always played him TT. I think TT are just a really strong, tight knit faction. I've been picking up a few extra non-TT models (goryo, hanged, belles, datsue ba) to boost my crew and widen the scope of my play. Running Datsue Ba to drop those early Seishin for the early Yan Lo chi is pretty obvious but I've seen some folks talk about dropping mindless zombies in a similar way. Obviously this would be great because I could boost chi and turn their corpses in
  14. To help budding and struggling Yan Lo players (i.e. me, total self interest) I thought we could have a bit of an ancestral conflux and pool some experience. There is a pinned thread on yan lo, a pull my finger page, and schemes & stones podcast which cover general lo-ing. These are all great, though ageing a bit. The focus of this topic on specific master match ups for Yan - ambitious, but dream big! The diversity of crew builds, scheme pools, terrain layout in Malifaux is staggering and a core strength of its wonderfully rich and balanced mechanics. However, there are predictabl
  15. Yan Lo likes Chi. Hayreddin likes Vitality. More importantly, they both like acquiring it in the early game, so they can get access to their upgrades and actions as quickly as possible. This got me thinking about how to gather these resources as efficiently as possible on turn 1, without neutering the rest of the crew itself. Hiring Hayreddin and Yan Lo won't always be the correct choice, hell, its unlikely even to be a "most of the time" thing either. But if it's corner deployment and the terrain suits it... Farm away! Turn 1, Yan Lo ditches a card for Focus Chi, Spirit Barrages a Necrop
  16. Heya wyrdos! I'm interested in starting Yan Lo because I like his mechanics and I mainly play TT and Ressers anyway. I've listened to the Schemes and Stones Episode and Bucky mentioned Wastrel and Komainus as potent models for Yan Lo. What makes them good in his Crew? Ok they are cheap models so Yan Lo can build up his Chi quickly. Are there some synergies? Thank you!
  17. Hey guys! I've recently listened to the Yan Lo episode on Schemes and Stones and they mentioned a Sebastian + Yan Lo Combo. Yan Lo Lightning Dances a poisoned model into Sebastian. This model can suffer up to 6 dmg only from staying engaged with Sebastian. Are there some crew lists out there? Is this competitive in some way? Thank you!
  18. Afternoon all, So after a long time playing the gambling, innocent casino owner that is Lynch I've decided to try and branch out and with a choice across the whole faction, I narrowed it down to McCabe or Yan Lo. After umming and ahhing and asking away on social media, I'm going to go with Yan Lo and his mighty, mighty beard. This thread will serve me as somewhere to get my thoughts down on various models and hopefully get any tips and tricks, as well as a place for me to complain afterward. Now, straight off the bat, I'm not actually sure what strategies and schemes Yan
  19. Sorry if this is common knowledge for most... I started up with Malifuax last year and since then have built up a decent size collection of 10 Thunder. Recently i have been interested in getting Yan Lo, and found a box at a local gaming store but it has the old style box (from what i can figure it looks like the grey box from 1.5E). I just want to know if i get this box will i have to buy a Second Wave deck in order to have get the 2E cards for the crew? Thanks for any info.
  20. I am a Neverborn player but I would like to try the Resurrectionists a bit. I would like to start with a limited model range and keep an oriental theme (budget and esthetics issue). I thus wanted to start with 2 masters: Yan Lo & Kirai. As to my pool of models, I would like to keep it limited to their crew boxes and all the oriental resers, namely: Soul PorterChiaki the NieceAshigaruYinToshiroIzamuIkiryoLost LoveSeishinOnryoGakiPunk zombiesDatsue BaShikomeDo you feel that this would be a competitive model pool where I could handle most strategies & schemes or should I add a few models
  21. Hi all, Just looking for some clarification on Yan Lo's Chi collecting abilities. 1. Does "Harvest Chi" stack with "Revitalize"? If I were to kill an enemy model with Yan Lo while within 8" of it, does my Chi increase by 2, since they're seperate abilities? 2. Would I get +2 Chi from "Revitalize" from dealing severe damage AND killing the target on that same attack? My initial guesses are "Yes" and "No" respectively. But clarification would be appreciated. Thanks! :)
  22. (First of all, citizens of Malifaux, sorry about my bad english and the poor quality of the photos) I'm an old wargame player, a recent Malifaux convert and a mediocre painter. My first crew was Masters of the Path, a crew that was quickly growing, adding all the Ancestors. One of the Ashigaru lost his banner in a bloody battle (That's the price for ruining the zen garden with his lance) Here you can see me failing at freehanding the clothes of Chiaki and ol' Yan. The Soul Porter is still a paint in progress since I can't paint a convincing lantern. Oh, that's a nice Izamu. But hey
